The June panel heard and deadlocked subcontracting grievances from Tampa Local 79, Arizona Local 104, and Harrisburg, Pa. Local 776. For months now, UPS Freight Teamsters have been reporting serious subcontracting violations.
After the last panel, IBT Vice President Ken Hall promised that the union is taking subcontracting to arbitration.
The union has not stated if it plans to arbitrate these three deadlocked grievances, too.
